Getting Around


Driving a Car

At the Old Town campus, students, staff, and faculty have the option to park in the 220 NW Davis Parking Garage at a subsidized $6 daily rate. Located just two blocks from campus, this lot is open 24/7. Students can reserve parking using ParkChirp, or they can request bundles of 5 validations in advance. Students will receive email at the beginning of the term with instructions for the 220 Parking Garage.

There are also several public parking garages, as well as street parking, available near the Old Town campus for an unsubsidized hourly or daily rate. 

The NE campus parking is free for the 2023-24 academic year. All motorized vehicles are required to obtain a no-cost virtual P-Zone parking permit through UO Transportation Services' online parking portal. Please see the Resource Guide for detailed parking maps.


Riding a Bike

Bicycles are allowed in buildings on both campuses. Students are encouraged to register bikes with the Department of Parking and Transportation and review Portland's bike laws. Consider wearing a helmet and using a secure U-shaped lock, as well as keeping a copy of your bike's serial number. You can register your bike through Project529.

The bicycle entrance to the White Stag building of the Old Town campus is located through the south door under the Burnside Bridge. This door is controlled by card key access and can be unlocked during regular campus hours using your student ID card. Bicycles can be carried down the stairs or up and down the freight elevator to the Bike Barn Storage Area in the basement. This storage is for daily use only, and any bikes stored long-term will be impounded. Bicycles are not allowed on any floor other than the basement.

Bike racks are available on the NW Couch Street sidewalk at the Old Town campus and in several locations on the NE campus.


Bike Share, E-Scooter, & Rideshare

Portland's BIKETOWN program has 1,000 bikes and 100 stations across downtown Portland and Portland's metro neighborhoods. There is a BIKETOWN sharing station on both the NE and the Old Town campuses. Rates are based on time of ride, and annual memberships are also available for purchase. Many students qualify for BIKETOWN for All, a reduced-price membership that offers unlimited and free 60-minute trips and other benefits.

Several electric scooter companies, such as Lime, Skip and Bird, are seasonally available for rent.

Numerous rideshare companies operate in Portland, such as car2go, Lyft, and Uber. Lyft Ride Smart at UO Portland offers student discounts on Lyft rides to and from campus. Students can receive $7 off up to four rides per month using this program.


Buses & Trains

TriMet (TriCounty Metropolitan District of Oregon) is the transit system for the Portland metropolitan area. The Old Town campus is located along the Red and Blue Max line, and is accessible by bus, MAX (Metropolitan Area Express) light rail, and WES (Westside Express Service) commuter rail. The NE campus is serviced by TriMet bus routes 17, 8, and 70, which stop near campus every 15 minutes or better most of the day, every day.

Portland Streetcar operates three lines around 16 miles of track in Portland's central city area.
